On February 16 the Butte College men's basketball team closed out their season at home by hosting Lassen College who proved to be too much for the Roadrunners. In the early going Butte led 15-10 before the Cougars went on a 15-1 run to eventually lead 32-22 at halftime. In the second half the Roadrunners cut the Lassen lead to seven points until the Cougars went on another run to put the game away 72-54.
All shots were taken with D700 + 50 mm. f/1.8 in first half (images #1-#3) and + 80-200 f/2.8 in second half (images #4-#6).
Comments are welcome.
1. Player #32 was the major contributor to the Roadrunner effort with the most aggressive play and 16 points scored.
3. 6'8" player #34 was the second highest scorer for Butte with 11 points.
6. A closer view of the dreadlocks of Player #33 on the Lassen squad.
Thanks for the feedback, Jon. It seems that basketball is no longer just a sport but has also evolved into a vehicle for displaying the latest developments in tattoos, hair styles, and colorful footwear.
